analog vs digital electric meters
Most people typically don’t pay attention to their electric meters, but if your considering to install a grid tie solar electric system, it’s a good idea to determine what type of electric meter you have.
Digital meters or solid state meters have no moving parts and work similar to analog meters but they display the data on a digital screen versus the dials on an analog meter. The utility will be able to read the data from the meter every 15 minutes without the need of sending a meter reader to your property since its connected to the utilities network. Digital meters allow your utility company to monitor your usage remotely and are typically bidirectional.
